Rhinebeck is rapidly approaching! I leave for the east coast in 38 days! Last time I shared my progress I was only a few rows beyond the sleeve divide. I didn’t feel like I’d made much progress since then. Much to my surprise, this happened when I tried it on just now…
WHOA!! That’s nearly a sweater!! Yay! And it fits well! I’m so pleased! Partially because of my sweater progress but also because I’ve gotten my knitting time back!
I was in a bit of a funk, realizing my job was really cutting into my big sweater plans. I was getting nervous about a hood, a zipper, pockets, sleeves…lots of details and time running out! Well, worry no more! I’m back to full time knitting! My ‘new job’ was really contract work on a trial basis. While my ‘boss’ loved me, her program wasn’t quite ready for the changes she was trying to implement. I got the ‘we’re putting those tasks on hold’ call this morning. They’ve still got some work they’d like me to do, but maybe that’ll be 15 hours a month. I should probably be concerned about finding some real work but naaaaaah. I’ve got way more important things to do (like turn Bill Murray into a sweater…more on that tomorrow!)
It’s only Tuesday…I think I can get to the bottom of my sweater by the end of the week! I think tomorrow, if I can find time in my busy schedule, I’ll go zipper shopping!
